Hodge Podge

Howdy do, y'all?

Yesterday was a weird day.  You ever have one of those just hodge podge days where if someone asked you what you did, you wouldn't really be able to pinpoint it?

Let's see, I scrubbed these outdoor pictures we have hanging up because they got mold or something on them.  Vinegar and baking soda FTW!  I watered our lilacs and enjoyed the scent as the wind whipped.  I did some research on blog stuff which I then forgot to talk to the Mr about when he got home.  I filmed a recipe that had to be done in parts so that was irritating because my light kept getting worse throughout the day despite being assured by the local weather team that it would be sunny all day.  Lies.  The other night at the grocery, I saw that they marked down Easter turkeys and for $12, I can't pass that up.  So I got him thawed (not gonna tell you how) and roasted his bum up because I always love the option of having turkey to grab from the freezer.  Thank you, Food Saver! (affiliate link) 

The Mr, of course, got stuck at work and had to run to Trader Joe's for a few things they were out of the other day so we got down to workout later than I care to these days.  We've been trying to make it a point to go down by no later than 5 pm now which is an hour before we almost always did.  Then I started to get a phantom gall bladder attack.  Those are rare but always so fun.  That thing has been out of my body for almost 20 years and there are still times the scar tissue will twitch and mimic an attack.  It freaked me out the first few times I experienced it but I read from people it happens all the time no matter how long it's out.  Usually, I can do a really exaggerated stretch and massage the area and it'll calm it but sometimes it laughs and says "nope, not happening!"  Oh, we got our AA rewards gift cards.  We both got $100 gift cards for Target.

We had BBQ pork chops and sweet corn for dinner.  Yum!

Today Mean Dreams comes out.  It was one of Bill Paxton's last movies.  I remember seeing a press junket and he was so proud of this movie so we are definitely going to rent it and I will try not to cry.  I recorded Nights in Rodanthe  (affiliate link) from the HBO preview so I could watch it and sob.

So as you can see, it wasn't a fantastical day but you know, any day above ground is a good one so there's that.

What movie always makes you ugly cry?

  1. Wow, you had quite the day and I will have to remind you to tell me what you forgot to tell me yesterday. You were right to get that turkey, especially at that price. It is so nice to be able to get a good turkey dinner anytime throughout the year from the freezer and our future selves will thank you for it!

  2. I'm a big movie cryer. Have to stop the playback sometimes. And it's the ones that I didn't suspect that hit me hardest. Most recently: Seeking a Friend for the End of the World. I DID NOT expect to cry during a Steve Carell movie. The manipulative ones get me mad. Deep Impact and Titanic both have that long drawn-out series of characters saying good-bye and it's blatant and manipulative and I end up balling every time the Irish mother tucks her babies into bed so they don't spend their last moments in the chaos of the sinking ship waiting for a spot in a life boat that will never come. Damn you Jim Cameron and all your ilk!!!

    But I keep watching. *sigh*

  3. Oh my gosh I get the phantom gall bladder attacks too! I never knew there was an actual name for them, I just thought I was losing my mind!

  4. A busy day indeed!! You're cookin' with gas, sister! lol

    Ugly movie cries for me have anything to do with an animal dying (Old Yeller, Bambi...I even freaked out the first time I thought the tiger was killed in Ice Age -- yeah, I'm that bad). Even cried for Jaws the first time I saw it as a kid. The two non-animal movise that come to mind where I cry hard are With Honors and Carpe Diem. I lose it every time.
